Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Churchy Panic
Churchy LaFemme, famous triskadeikaphobe. From an early 1970’s Pogo strip.

Churchy LaFemme, from the late, great comic strip Pogo, likely would be saying, “Gyack! Friday the 13th come on a Friday this month!”

Not only is it Friday the 13th, but it’s Erev Yom Kippur - the earliest the holiday has fallen on the Gregorian calendar in 114 years.  (Of course, according to the Hebrew calendar, it comes around on the same day every year - the 10th of Tishrei.)  At sundown today, we Red Sea Pedestrians observe our annual Atone-Fest, a 25+ hour day of fasting and soul-searching.  

By way of preparation, it doesn't hurt to cram in a few choons from the Little White Choon-Box.  So let’s see what’s playing, shall we?
  1. Gonzalogy - The Gonzalo Bergara Quartet

  2. What Would Brian Boitano Do? - Soundtrack, South Park - Bigger, Longer, Uncut

  3. What would Brian Boitano do
    If he was here right now?
    He’d make a plan, and he’d follow through,
    That’s what Brian Boitano’d do!

    When Brian Boitano was in the Olympics
    Skating for the gold,
    He did two salchows and a triple lutz
    While wearing a blindfold

    When Brian Boitano was in the Alps
    Fighting grizzly bears,
    He used his magical fire breath
    And saved the maidens fair

    So what would Brian Boitano do
    If he was here today?
    I’m sure he’d kick an ass or two,
    That’s what Brian Boitano’d do!

    I want this V-chip out of me,
    It has stunted my vo-ca-bu-lar-y.

    And I just want my mom
    To stop fighting everyone

    For Wendy I’ll be an activist too,
    ’Cause that's what Brian Boitano'd do.

    And what would Brian Boitano do,
    He’d call all the kids in town,
    And tell them to unite for truth
    That's what Brian Boitano’d do.

    When Brian Boitano traveled through time
    To the year 3010,
    He fought the evil robot king
    And saved us all again

    And when Brian Boitano built the pyramids,
    He beat up Kublai Khan,
    ’Cause Brian Boitano doesn’t take shit from anybody!

    So let’s all get together,
    And unite to stop our moms
    And we’ll save Terrance and Phillip too,
    Cause that’s what Brian Boitano’d do.

    And we’ll save Terrance and Phillip too,
    ’Cause that’s what Brian Boitano’d dooooo...
    ’Cause that’s what Brian Boitano’d do!
